Re: Cruising yachts behaving if they're doing us a favour

I treat crew on Auspicious the same way I treat crew on my deliveries - crew get too and from the boat on their own and all expenses aboard are covered. ALL. Meals and activities ashore are generally individual but for good crew I'll pick up some of that also.

Just for reference I usually provision for about $15US/person/day and we all eat quite well.

On delivery I have some outstanding crew that are always there when I ask them. I'll always describe their exploits with me to owners and try to get transportation for them covered.

I've had crew that found sailing with me rewarding enough to take me to dinner, which is appreciated but not expected. After a trip like that I spend some time thinking about what I did so I can do it more often. *grin*

sail fast and eat well, dave
